Melbourne: Women on testosterone therapy, after menopause showed a significant improvement in verbal learning and memory, a study by Australian researchers has said.The research led by Susan Davis, Director of the Women`s Health Research Program at Monash University is the first large randomised, placebo-controlled investigation into the effects of testosterone on cognitive function in postmenopausal women which offer a promising avenue for research into memory and ageing, said a statement by the University.Testosterone has been implicated as being important for brain function in men and these results indicate that it has a role in optimising learning and memory in women.Dementia which was estimated to affect more than 35 million people worldwide in 2010 is more common in women than men. There are no effective treatments to prevent memory decline.
